Famous quotes containing the word intimacy:

    When intimacy followed love in Italy there were no longer any vain pretensions between two lovers.
    Stendhal [Marie Henri Beyle] (1783–1842)

    People are less self-conscious in the intimacy of family life and during the anxiety of a great sorrow. The dazzling varnish of an extreme politeness is then less in evidence, and the true qualities of the heart regain their proper proportions.
    Stendhal [Marie Henri Beyle] (1783–1842)

    We cannot set aside an hour for discussion with our children and hope that it will be a time of deep encounter. The special moments of intimacy are more likely to happen while baking a cake together, or playing hide and seek, or just sitting in the waiting room of the orthodontist.
    Neil Kurshan (20th century)
